Enough! No More Ground!

The more I’m involved in this campaign, the more I see the face of the other side, the more I realize, these are not your average happy go lucky people with merely a different opinion.  There are elements of the Gay movement that are out for blood.  It’s these activist groups that persuade us to hand over more and more of our rights.  I’m realizing that even if we win this thing in California….this issue isn’t beaten.  It’s only the beginning.  We’ve got to fight for a constitutional amendment at the federal level.  Winning California will give us the momentum we need to launch a national campaign.  We need to do it.

I think the groundwork has been laid in the California fight for a huge nationwide backlash against the gay rights movement. We are feeling the tide turning out here in the trenches.  We are going to win this thing.  We’ve been out in the streets, in our neighborhoods and I can feel the wind shifting in our favor.  The support is growing, the tide is changing.  It’s incredible.

We’ve got to do more of what we’ve been doing….but get it going at a national level.  Talk about it to our neighbors, write about it to the editors of our newspapers. The gay lobby has incredible amounts of money, but we have numbers on our side. The vast majority of the US wants no part of gay marriage in their state. If proposition 8 passes in California, we will have a mandate that could help turn the tide in our favor. We should use that momentum to get a constitutional amendment to the US Constitution. If we leave the decision up to the Supreme Court, there is a chance that it would lose and the price is too high to risk that. We’d see all fifty states fall at once if the Supreme Court went left on us.

The only way to protect this nation is to specify the obvious—marriage is between a man and a woman— only on a national level. The voters will support it, the question is if our legislators will support it. The longer we wait on the issue though, the slimmer our chances get. Awareness is growing now. Now is the time to move on it.

Come Stand With Us!

    I know some people in California are not for Prop 8 passing and I completely understand why and i feel like a jerk in a way for supporting proposition 8. My reasoning is this. It is clearly a desire for gays to have religion sanctify their way of life. It can not be so. Any good religion will not sanctify stealing or murder or adultry or premarital sex and yet people want to force religion into sanctifying homosexual relations. It is clear homosexuality is not condoned by the bible. Because of that, homosexuals should not want the religious symbol of marriage to bind them. If i was a homosexual i would not want a religious term to bind me to my lover. I would want a union established by a secular source. Because if religion says my way of life is wrong, why would i want any part in it.
    Likewise, to those that are religious, marriage is sanctified and allowing it to homosexuals would debase it. Churches would be sued for discrimination and they aren’t discriminating. They are just choosing friends that are like them. Not that they don’t like gays, they just don’t condone their behavior and so like a person who is totally opposite from you, you don’t hang out like you are best friends.
    I feel like homosexuals are trying to make religion and sexual sin best friends.

    Mary, Don’t feel poorly for making a stand. You’re doing just fine. Homosexuals are free to live their lives as they see fit. No one ought to look down on them as individuals, it’s only their private moral choices we disagree with morally, but when they start demanding we condone, accept and celebrate their moral choices, that crosses a line. I don’t believe this issue is about rights at all. They have every right we have. There are groups of radical homosexuals that want you to feel guilty about your position so that they can get what they want. It’s this brow beating thing we see on so many blogs and forums. They want to label and demonize our position, they ridicule us, but their mocking has nothing to do with substance. On the issues, I’ve found that they have no foundation. The more I research, the more I realize that the facts don’t support their views.

    This is a great blog. http://troysmsxp.blogspot.com/2008_10_01_archive.html He is a scientist and loves delving into the facts and research. He’s put up an astonishing summary of scientific articles and research on the issues. No wonder they try to knock us down with insults. That’s all they have.

    Exactly Dave, where do I sign up?? That’s what I want to know. I don’t think there’s a movement yet out there that is dedicated to a constitutional amendment nation wide. I think the reality is that our leaders are not willing to stick their necks out to lead the people in the cause. The momentum has to come from the grass roots. That’s us.

    If we can get enough people to support a US Constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, then our leaders will not have to stick their necks out in order to help us.

    I had two of my signs stolen in broad daylight yesterday. Today I put up a 4ft by 8ft Super Sign fifteen feet above the ground on my corner property. Nothing like a little vandalism to make the patriotic blood boil over.

    YOU CAN STEAL MY SIGNS BUT YOU CAN’T STEAL MY VOTE!!!!!!!!!

    Wow. I’m a little sad. It is true there are rabid activists on each side of the story. But just because you hear about them more often in the news doesn’t mean they are the majority. There are people like myself who are members of the LDS Church and have struggled with homosexuality since I can remember. Then I see friends and church members who don’t know my struggle out for blood and using hate speech to back up their points. It hurts.

    Please don’t contradict yourselves by saying you’re not against gay people, just against their wanting marriage. Actions speak louder than words. Every political organization has an agenda. Prop 8 has an agenda. But that doesn’t mean every straight person is part of Prop 8’s agenda. Nor does it mean every gay person agrees. You treat us like we are evil from birth and not citizens of this country at all. I believe in the voice of the people when it comes to legislation. But remember there are *real* people behind the mask you put on us. By banning gay marriage you are making sure we can *only* have sex outside of marriage. You are promoting promiscuity.

    Lt Gort, I am truly sorry that you have a difficult trial in life. However, in reading your comment, I have to ask why you are lumping me in with extremes? Just like you don’t want to be lumped in with the fringes, you shouldn’t be so quick to stigmatize others. My property was vandalized again last night and “no on 8” literature left in the street. That is not right. I will fight for my freedoms whenever they are threatened. If you want to take issue with something I personally have done to offend you, I’ll gladly listen.

    Don’t be fooled. If you are truly a religious person, you realize that gay activities are already immoral. Calling it marriage won’t all of a sudden make gay behavior moral. Society doesn’t determine morality.
